When you select Playback mode the last picture taken is displayed. You can move backward or forward through the images using the LEFT and RIGHT buttons on the 4-way controller. The amount of overlay information displayed is controlled by pressing the DISP button. Here you see folder number - image number and the date & time. The icon in the upper left corner indicated that the image was captured using Intelligent Face Detection.
